Marcus Johnson was born in Columbus, Ohio. He and his family moved to Washington, D.C. when he was 12 years old. He grew up listening to a wide variety of music but found his calling in jazz, where he incorporates the rhythms of rap with R&B. His interest in jazz first showed itself when he began “tinkling the keys at age 13 (his step-father won Maryland’s “Pick-3 Lottery” and used the winnings to buy Johnson’s first keyboard) and he found himself studying both traditional and contemporary jazz musicians (Joe Sample and Thelonious Monk are two names he frequently cites)”.

At age ten, he established a neighborhood lawn care service. As a teenager, he started an auto-detailing company.  He “played in a jazz band at Montgomery Blair High School”.  Although he attended University of Miami at one point (learning about music production), Johnson earned a bachelor of arts degree in music at Howard University, where he was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity. Afterwards, at Georgetown University, he earned both an MBA and law degree.
